We came from here
The thread "Our Orchid blooms in November 2014"
in Orchids forum
Let me start with my Phrag Sorcerer's Fire. This one started to bloom in Summer and it just keeps on opening buds on several spikes. I moved it yesterday downstairs into the living room, to enjoy it better. In the greenhouse it had been sitting on the top shelf against the house wall, a very sunny bright spot. The pot was flooded daily, and it got fish tank water every so often.
If you love Gongoras but don't have the room for one, as many can get very large, you might like Gongora (Acropera) armeniaca. This one is almost a miniature Orchid and it clumps freely, not taking up much room at all. I flood it daily with rain water and consider it a warm grower. It does not need bright light and it blooms several times a year. (btw Gongora/Acropera horichiana is similar and just as cute. )
